The Twelve Days of Christmas

Here are the haiku I've been writing and sharing over the past 12 days at Gillena Cox's blog for her Twelve Days of Christmas celebration.

Christmas morning
 amongst the pine needles
a spider's gift

family gathering ...
the many sounds
of laughter

cemetery visit --
I place a Christmas angel
at his headstone

full moon ...
picking at leftovers
from the fridge

Christmas lilies ...
the way her eyes
light up

packing away
the Christmas decorations ...
another year without her 

New Year's Day ...
the bunch of balloons
hangs shriveled

first dream of the year --
i wake not knowing
which way is up

late Christmas card
call of a peacock
in the distance

in every room
threads of tinsel

wrapped up
in this Christmas gift, too
his love for me

holiday's end --
the spirit of Christmas
still in the air
